Course Description

The Chemistry Department is primarily located on the 3rd floor of the west wing of the Dolan Center for Science and Technology. The biochemistry faculty and laboratories are located within the Biology Department on the 2nd floor and general chemistry labs are on the 1st floor.

We pride ourselves in having a student-centered program; our faculty, staff and curriculum are committed to and focused on developing students as chemists and women and men in service of others. Nearly all of our courses are taught by full-time faculty and most courses and labs are small to encourage in-depth learning and more hands-on experiments, many with state-of-the-art instrumentation.

All of our majors earn a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry. This Chemistry program from John Carroll University offers a wide variety of options for our students upon graduation. Our students are well prepared for employment in the chemical industry, graduate school, or health-related professional programs. Additionally, students are equipped for careers in other fields such as business, education*, information science, journalism, forensic chemistry, or law, which is useful to students who wish to pursue a second major in another discipline.

A chemistry major combined with a minor in business is excellent preparation for a career in industrial chemistry if one’s goal is management or an M.B.A. This would also allow a student to complete the B.S. in Chemistry and M.B.A. at John Carroll in five years of full-time study. PL 311 should be taken in the Core curriculum to facilitate this goal. Interested students should consult with their advisor early in their freshman or sophomore year.

A chemistry major combined with the criminology sequence in sociology, is excellent preparation for employment in forensic chemistry.
